The title of Kaoru Ishibashi's new LP "Lighght" is taken from a 1965 poem by Aram Saroyan in which the word "lighght" is the single word of text in the center of the page. It was considered controversial in its time for calling its just one, misspelled word a poem at all.

The Strokes
"Comedown Machine"
RCA

The Strokes have taken quite the detour since their proto-punk sound of the early 2000s.
